School SLP Ashley went from bystander to believer after testing an articulation instrument with one of her challenging /r/ clients.
"I first heard about Speech Buddies at the 2010 ASHA Convention. I thought it sounded like such a great idea, but could they really work? Well, after using Speech Buddies for several weeks, I believe they really do work! I used the /r/ Speech Buddy with a 7-year-old client who was not stimulable for /r/ before. His baseline data was 0 percent for /r/ in all positions. We used the /r/ probe throughout the first one-hour session. One week later, the client achieved 60 percent accuracy for producing /r/ in all positions of syllables while using the /r/ Speech Buddy probe. Some increase is expected in the early weeks of therapy. However, a 0 percent to 60 percent increase is greater than I would normally expect to see."
